Maple Burl Bowl

This bowl was made from the remnants of a burl I’ve been cutting pieces off for 3 years. I cut 4 pieces off and it was too nice to throw away even though it was cracked almost all the way through. A little CA glue took care of that.

It is 5” diameter x 2 1/4” high and made from maple burl with turquoise inlay from the Sleeping Beauty mine in Arizona. It is finished with EEE and Shellawax.

Cheers, Jim

Nice work Jim!

I used to collect gobs of low-grade turquoise when backpacking in the Gila Wilderness. Left it all behind when I moved, figured it had no use 8^(

Sweet!

The turquoise really contrasts with the color of the grain.

My first though was …. Oh this is a nice bowl and I Love the turquoise inlay…. then I thought this would go well with the tissue box I made.
Nice work as always Jim!

Thank you all for the nice comments. I sure sounded cracked while I was turning it. I wore my face mask all the while thinking I would be picking out of my teeth if I didn’t!!

Cheers …...........Jim
